The bag Michael uses? by rick694uk on 13 October 2004 11:27pm

So impressed by how you dealt with the notebook query; how about Michael's bag?

We all know the one, don't we?

There's been much debate, do you have a definitive answer?

Hi Rick! Read page 287 of Himalaya ...

There were previous postings about this. I think the bag he used in his earlier series was specially made for him by Barbour, and for Sahara he had a new one made up for him by some other company.

Thanks Lou. Bloomin heck, you're eagle-eyed and thorough, aren't you?!

Gwen, yeah there was, but we didn't get a definitive answer, if my memory serves me correct. I followed up some of the leads and they were nothing like.

Nigel, I hereby sentence you to six weeks of Izal for your cheek! ;)

Or should that be cheeks!!?

In answer to your question Nigel - i can fill you in on that one!! i was recently sent an article from the paper all about michael from the USA, its one of my Russell Watson friends who sent it to me - and guess what in it michael says at the end - its best to take toilet rolls in packs as the round ones squash!!! tee hee so there you are

i think he must use andrex , it is meant to be soft strong and very long as it means he would have to carry less of them . a bit like michael himself , well i would'nt know if he is very long or not , is he as long as six foot :0)
when i was away i missed soft towells and soft toilet tissue !
p.s somewhere in the book of sahara there is a picture of the little packet of toliet paper he uses .it is a floral one and the toilet paper comes out like large hankies i would imagine !

This is available from Whitehouse Cox & Co. Ltd, they made two bags specially for Michael and have taken orders to supply the same style of bags since the TV programs went out as Michael was kind enough to give them an acknowledgement at the end of his book. Check out their web site although the two styles made specially for Michael are not featured. www.whitehousecox.co.uk and contact my dad Stephen Cox direct
